4 Ways to Make Schools Safer With Cloud Surveillance

July 31st, 2020



As school campuses around the country remain closed and prepare for virtual instruction, there’s a greater need than ever for schools to remotely monitor and secure their school campuses. From break-ins to natural disasters, this blog post will explore how cloud video surveillance offers school districts the ability to easily and securely protect their campuses. 

Uninterrupted 24/7 Recording

School violence and vandalism can occur at any time – and when school isn’t in session, it poses an even higher risk. When an intruder comes onto their property, get alerted in real-time, download the footage from your smartphone, and send it onto authorities within minutes. Cloud cameras offer triple-redundant, high-resolution video surveillance stored in a T4 data center, so your video footage is always there when you need it. 

Easy Multi-User Management

From small to large school districts, Cloud video lets their entire security team create an unlimited number of users for viewing live and recorded video. New user setup takes just a few minutes each – with the additional flexibility of adding or deleting users as staff members change. While a traditional system requires you to install a recorder at each individual school, Cloud VS allows you to have full control of your footage from a centralized location. While retrieving data from a traditional system can be a tedious process with multiple users, Cloud VS makes finding, viewing, and downloading footage instantaneous.  Log in from a centralized interface, click on the footage by time and or event, and download your video footage within minutes.  

Unlimited Viewing with No Bandwidth Issues 

One of the most significant limitations of traditional systems is its capability to provide streaming power for multiple users. School districts are a prime example of these accessibility restrictions. For example, a district that may have over a dozen schools with over 50 users are all being pulled for one recorder simultaneously. 

Accessing video footage from the Cloud allows you to have unlimited viewing sessions at any given time. The robust, T4 data center handles bandwidth seamlessly – removing typical bandwidth limitations present with traditional, on-premise systems. Unlike a traditional security system with limited bandwidth and streaming, Cloud VS provides unlimited users and concurrent streaming from a centralized location. Cloud VS removes the burden and complexity of accessibility challenges, with a more secure solution.  

Complement your On-Premise System 

With a simple plug-and-play deployment, add Cloud cameras to complement your school’s existing on-premise system for redundant footage. Cloud cameras are maintained remotely and automatically – no additional hardware and associated fees required.   If you have a traditional system, there’s no need to overhaul your existing system and replace each one with cloud cameras. Simply add one, two, or twenty cloud cameras to each entrance, or high-risk area. As the needs of your school or district grow, so can your cloud camera count – making the hybrid cloud model an affordable and ultra-simple strategy for securing your business.
